Or, as Seth Godin refers to it in a recent blog post, “shipping your art.”
“What, exactly, are you insisting will happen before you start shipping your art?” he asks.
A helpfully clarifying question. For me: both children will achieve perfect health, the house will seem manageable, and I’ll have a great job and an exercise habit. Ah. I see his point. Plus, when the “art” you will “ship” has a great deal to do with the aforementioned living skills, well, waiting moves beyond illogical to flat-out ironic.
